Marvel Premiere #49 / Falcon - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller
Marvel Premiere v1 #49, 1979 - Much to their surprise, the Falcon swoops down among the denizens of Harlem. Frank Miller takes your typical centralized layout and enhances it with telling background details. The woman dropping her groceries adds levity, as does the tricycle-riding child right beside her. The architecture, signage, and water towers all contribute to making the scene naturalistic and convincing. This is the superhero's first solo issue and Miller's few renditions of the character. This is number 1 of 3 Marvel Premiere issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Marvel Premiere issues. See also this blog's Frank Miller checklist.
